Proof that news websites are doomed

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt October 11, 2013

Profit models for news websites inevitably treat page views as the red headed siblings of circulation. Ideally, you want more page views than your circulation because page views are worth less under the current model. Your goal becomes herding as many people to your site as you possibly can. But websites aren’t really the best […]

Decatur Police arrest woman after unexpected Monday morning tour of city

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt September 24, 2013

Two women in a stolen vehicle led Decatur Police on a “follow” Monday morning, according to a report provided by Decatur PD. To casual observers, this would be known as a “chase.” But Decatur Police have a limited-chase policy, so in the technical sense, it wasn’t a chase. It was a “follow” police said. Police […]

Rating the new Batman

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt September 22, 2013

I wasn’t too sure about “Beware The Batman.” I was reared on “Batman: The Animated Series,” so that’s my measuring stick for every Post-90s television adaptation.

Hair cut

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt September 18, 2013

It is Aug. 16 and I am waiting for a hair cut at my local mane crop shop. It has a doc in the box feel, but the soundtrack is a pair of clippers and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” I haven’t had a regular barber in two years. The last regular was Christina (this isn’t […]

Our regular readers probably saw that’s neighborhood frienemy Decatur Metro reported there will be enhanced security at this Friday’s high school football game. We’re going to report it, too.

Yes! The state of Georgia has deemed me competent enough to teach high school English. I also have mad basic skills, fool. And nobody thought I could do it.

Charles McNair is Mallet Man. So am I. He’s a generation older than me, but our lives have intersected in the most interesting ways.

You no pay writer, content no read good

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt September 10, 2013

Since interest in this website has picked up over the last few weeks, I’ve had more than one person suggest I could boost our list of contributors by asking some of them to write for free. Many of the people telling me this are writers. After hearing this from several writers, I’ve come to an […]
